Your eyes light the flames that rise
In the deepest parts of my heart
My mind fills with gentle surprises
As love’s flames now begin to start

My mind is given to a drunken madness
And made to feel very nimble and light
As these flames burn away any sadness
That kept my world from being bright

And my dreams are of only your love
Which became the best part of my day
For it is only you alone I think of
For only you can bring smiles to stay

As your eyes now inspire the flames
That find life rising up from my heart
My mind is filled with a joyful happiness
That now begins as each new day starts.

Written for Deborah, April 28, 1977
A couple months before we married!
